Urban Mineopolis

Student research project by Nicolas Ceulaers, Mingquan Ding, Timotheus Krzywik

MINEOPOLIS is an open world single player game, developed as a modification for the existing game Minecraft. It is based on the game modification 20.000 Blocks. The goal of this research project is to make an urban design game including a custom developed game structure and a new catalog of elements. It should educate the player about urban design principles and give architects information about the city planning procedure of the players. In the end, the player can use the game as a design tool, by changing the element catalog of the game to fit into actual use cases.
